You've probably noticed it : the traditional technique of cane furniture is back with a bang in contemporary interiors. This year, the boom created by the famous S32 chairs by Marcel Breuer - which had antique dealers and decorators fighting over them at a high price – paved the way for the emergence of new pieces of cane furniture, as selected by MOM this week.
Caning is a method of weaving surface used for furniture. The material, cane, is derived from the peeled bark of a rattan stalk which most commonly found in South East Asia. The caned furniture has a long tradition and history back in 17th century when European trade with Asian. It has a unique quality that give warm and timeless texture to the interior space.“Cane Collection” is designed by Atelier2+ and manufactured by PODIUM factory, a long history and expertise in woodcraft company in Thailand. We try to capture the classic colonial interior and reinterpreted in new contemporary life style
